Solo Adventures Singalong – #1

Our first Solo Adventures Singalong is here, and we’re starting as we mean to go on with the classic from ABBA – Lay All Your Love on Me – an iconic track, we can all agree!

Whilst this song is performed by ABBA, and that is the soundtrack we are using, the inspiration for the video choice is firmly from the Mamma Mia film itself – see the scene below.

Everyone will pick a line or two from the Lyrics (see table below) and perform those lines. Once everyone has finished their filming, these will be combined into a music video of the entire group singing the song! Be as falmboyant as possible, be as outrageous as you dare, and if you have access to a beach – USE IT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE! Get in the sea, put on those flippers and dance like nobody is watching.

Well…. Apart from us!

When filming / recording your chosen line, please record the line immediately before and after too, so that we can perfectly cut down the clip. Only the lines you have been assigned will be used, it’s just to ensure we have enough video recording to use for a seamless transition. Make sure that you do not have the audio blasting out, and where possible use your earphones / headphones etc.

To take part, simply log in to this site and reply to this post, indicating which lines you would like to take – please use the number on the left hand side to make it easy to spot which specific line you want to take. Please choose two, and put them in choice order – first = first choice, second = second choice. Once your lines have been confirmed, you’ll be added to the table below and you can then film your segment!

Deadline for entries to be submitted is Friday 18th June 2021 @ 21:00


LYRICSMEMBER
<—-VERSE 1—->
1I wasn’t jealous before we met
2Now every woman I see is a potential threat
3And I’m possessive, it isn’t nice
4You’ve heard me saying that smoking was my only vice
6But now it isn’t trueLOU
7Now everything is new
8And all I’ve learned has overturned
9I beg of you
<—-CHORUS—->
10Don’t go wasting your emotionTHOMAS
11Lay all your love on meTHOMAS
<—-VERSE 2—->
12It was like shooting a sitting duckSTEFF
13A little small talk, a smile, and baby, I was stuckSTEFF
14I still don’t know what you’ve done with me
15A grown-up woman should never fall so easily
16I feel a kind of fearLOU
17When I don’t have you near
18Unsatisfied, I skip my pride
19I beg you, dear
<—-CHORUS—->
20Don’t go wasting your emotion
21Lay all your love on me
22Don’t go sharing your devotion
23Lay all your love on me
<—-VERSE 3—->
24I’ve had a few little love affairsLIL
25They didn’t last very long and they’ve been pretty scarceLIL
26I used to think that was sensible
27It makes the truth even more incomprehensibleRIK
28‘Cause everything is newLOU
29And everything is youRIK
30And all I’ve learned has overturned
31What can I do?RIK
<—-CHORUS—–>
32Don’t go wasting your emotion
33Lay all your love on me
34Don’t go sharing your devotion
35Lay all your love on me
36Don’t go wasting your emotion
37Lay all your love on me
38Don’t go sharing your devotion
39Lay all your love on me
40Don’t go wasting your emotion
41Lay all your love on me
